Can the Facebook Azure login screen show in the language that your phone is set to?

Hi all,

We are creating a xamarin forms app on the iPhone and Android and have set it up to support multiple languages. When you change the language on the phone the app shows text in the relevant language as detailed in help articles on the xamarin site. We are using Azure as a back end and have hooked up login with Facebook, LinkedIn, Microsoft and our own custom auth provider. When you switch language, all of the login screens show in the relevant language except Facebook which continues to show in English The option to switch languages is available at the bottom of the Facebook login page, but we would like it to set this automatically based on the phone language if possible, like the other providers do out of the box.

Has anybody been able to do this at all? I’ve tried changing my Facebook language in the phone browser to French and then trying to log in to see if it carries the language through from there, but it still stays in English. We don’t specify the Facebook login page, Azure handles that for us so are stuck for ideas.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Best regards,
Al.
